lead, basically because the obamacare disaster and you still have barack obama going to virginia and not even mentioning the obamacare when he was on the stump for terry mcauliffe. and my assumption is there a lot of democrats who are looking at that in saying this is terry mcauliffe losing what was a double-digit lead because a couple weeks of bad stories about obamacare. there will be months and months ahead of bad stories of obamacare. jon: we have heard senator pat roberts call for her resignation. so far there has not been a huge lead of that. every indication from the administration and she's going to keep her job. is it because it would be too embarrassing at this point to add to the misery? by kicking out the health and human services secretary whose job it has been to implement this law? >> i think basically the obama administration doesn't want hearings on a replacement and that's what it boils down to. kathleen sebelius is safe in her job at least until the end of november when the website is supposed to work. we will see. but i would have liked her to take a page from
